New England Patriots v. Houston Texans: First Quarter Live

It’s time for the Texans’ second preseason game, this time against the reigning Super Bowl Champs.

NFL: AFC Divisional-Houston Texans at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

It’s time for kickoff. The Texans host their first preseason game at NRG Stadium, and play their second exhibition game of the season, against the Patriots. Houston will look to improve upon their performance against Carolina last week, hopefully reducing the penalties and errors that cost them so dearly. Unfortunately, they’ll have to do this against the Patriots, a team that’s had the Texans’ number for so many years, defeating them in nearly every occasion in which the two teams have met.
